Hey there, I'm "curious" about the vstrom 1000. I'm 30 years old and looking to buy my first street bike (dirt biking since i was 10). The Vstrom 1000 has caught my attention. I'm mostly looking for it to be primarily a tourer, but ill ride it around the city in the summer too. Next summer I have trip planned from where I live in Alberta Canada out to east coast with my Dad and Uncle. I think this bike would fit the bill. I have $5500 Canadian to spend, looking at prices here that still puts me in a gen1. What year should I be looking for? I don't want to buy an 07 and miss out on some key updates if I had only gotten the 08 etc.. I really enjoyed youtube videos on the 2015+ vstroms, looks perfect(cant afford im an old guy university student). How different are they compared to the older ones that I can afford?
